I think the best part about working in Soho, isn’t the beautiful people, the millions of food options, or the history per se, it’s the art and inspiration found in every corner. Colossal Media are constantly painting signs by hand, new shops that dictate style all over the world are opening up every day, and […]

One of the most appealing aspects of printmaking is its constraints. Ink + surface = print. Simple as that. What you can do with those elements, is up to you. I’ve seen screen printers use chocolate sauce as ink to decorate crepes, I’ve seen skateboards used as surfaces, and countless of methods of actual printing. […]

Reddit, one of the most popular websites in the world (with close to 8 billion page views per month), decided to conduct a little April Fool’s Day social experiment. With the creation of a subreddit called r/place, Reddit turned to its users […]

Imagine walking into a coffee shop early in the morning before work. You’re hungry and tired because you overslept your alarm by 20 minutes, so you had to skip breakfast. After looking at the menu you order a croissant and a latte. Both come out on time, and taste fine, like a croissant and latte […]

President Trump has released the first proposed federal budget of his presidency and surprise surprise, it looks like “the arts” are on the chopping block. You know what isn’t: Defense and National Security. Although it’s largely just for show, as most president’s first proposed federal budgets are usually “dead-on-arrival,” it’s a telling sign of the […]

It seems like Trump is an egotistical demigod who is obsessed with his self-image and self-worth. That got me thinking: as a president who’s having a huge image problem, who’s […]
